Went to Costco today for some supplies plus one of the chickens (we get 6 individual meals out of one of them). Walking in the parking lot, I spotted a car which looked like it had a familiar round emblem in the middle of the trunk. I wonder, I thought. Looking closer, yes, it was a Giulia, metallic black. Told Barb, hey, look at that. What, she asked. It's a Giulia I said. Oh, she says, I didn't recognize it from the back, looked like the car next to it (whatever that was, don't remember). She's lived with various Alfas for decades, so knows what they should look like. No, I said, see the emblem. Oh yeah.
I then said, maybe we could get one of those. No way, Jose, she says, I want a manual shift car. Do Audis now come with manuals like the one our friend has, she asked? Beats the hell out of me, I mumbled, but while they are beautifully made, I said I don't really want an Audi, BMW, Mercedes, or even a Volvo. Jaguar?
Oh well, As long as I can keep the LS, S, and Milano running... but someday maybe.
